Quick Hitters

1. Through eight weeks, Heath Miller has tallied double-digit PPR points six times. And the "ugly-duckling" performance from Week 5 still produced eight points. That's a respectable nadir for a non-superstar asset.

2. On the flip side, Vernon Davis (25 catches, 374 yards, four TDs) only has four PPR outings of 10 points or more. Strangely, that's an improvement from Davis' first-half production of last season.

3. Jermaine Gresham was the only Bengals playmaker to crack the century mark in receiving yards last week against Denver (A.J. Green had 105 yards from scrimmage). Of equal importance, in his last six games, Gresham has collected double-digit fantasy points three times.

4. Scott Chandler may be mired in a four-game touchdown drought, but he has taken incremental steps forward lately, boosting his receptions (1-2-3), targets (3-4-5) and receiving yards (4-15-51) in the last three weeks.
